All aboard the U.S.S. Salem! That was the theme of the bash of all soap bashes, the 50th anniversary party of Days of our Lives.  The event was held in Hollywood this past Saturday night (November 7th) at the Hollywood Palladium on the eve of the long-running NBC daytime drama’s golden anniversary on Sunday.

Corday also made a speech as the all the attendees shared in a toast to Days of our Lives, the legacy of the series, and to being an elite member of the extended family they were all a part of.

Great photos and love the pics of the 2 Chad’s, 2 Ciara’s, and 2 Austin’s. Where were the 2 Billie’s and the 2 Theo’s?

Looks like an awesome night. But, you left out Gloria Loring. Her photo is included, but you didn’t mention her in either list of names. 🙁
Clearly, she is my favorite! 😉

Oh man they really brought back the stars from past and present didn’t they???? It must have been so cool to have been there!

I’m glad Eileen Davidson showed up, and damn she looks better than ever there!!! Kristen is so missed!

I’m glad that stars like Alison Sweeney, Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith were there also.

And can we get Carrie played by Christie Clark back on the show? Austin Peck can return as Austin also.

It’s great to see the actors we haven’t seen in decades. I started watching the show when Gregg Marx was on. But there needs to be a correction in your pictures. Philece Sampler didn’t play Lee Dumonde. She was Renee Dumonde, her daughter. Brenda Benet who played Lee, was written off when she passed on.

Great Pictures. Looks like the guy who plays Adam on Y & R only shook twice. I hate when that happens just before a picture. Bring Jamie Lynn Bauer back DAYS.

As for flashbacks on DAYS…It’s not too late…Flashbacks will hit us when the darkness turns to light.

The scene where the original actress who played Julie in the first episode where she is shown shoplifting (which can be seen on utube)shouldv’e been used when Julie is talking to Ciara about her own shoplifting experience…like i said in another post Susan Seaforth could’ve said as an inside joke how different she looked back then…i would’ve loved that…and since Days is one of few soaps that avoided the wiping process and saved their episodes, there is so many flashbacks from each decade since the 60s that shouldv’e been shown in true celebration of the shows 50th…and as good as… Read more »

Patrick, I HOPE that DAYS is smart enough to re-invent Eve; allow her time to mend away from Salem and BRING KASSIE BACK in late 2016. We ought to start a Petition to Bring Back Kassie. How?

NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell Says Peacock Hit 18M Paid Subscribers Up From 15M In September

On Monday, during a webcast session at the UBS TMT investors conference, NBC Universal CEO, Jeff Shell shared that the NBCUniversal streaming service, Peacock has hit 18 million paid subscribers.

Interestingly, that is an uptick of 3 million paid subscribers since the end of September of this year, where the service had 15 million.

As soap fans know, Days of our Lives debuted exclusively in its new home on Peacock on September 12th, and viewers who watched on linear TV and NBC had to switch modes and pay-in for a subscription to watch the show.  However, there has been no quantifying data released on just how well DAYS is performing on the platform.

In terms of its sustainability and its ad-supported streaming platform, Shell added: “We were late coming into streaming, but we clearly chose the right business model.”  Shell noted that this strategy has helped offset declines in linear TV revenues, and a worsening advertising market.

The CEO went to explain: “We believe in the premium video ad-supported, dual revenue stream essential broadcast and cable on streaming, driven by key programming.” Shell also shared that declines in cable subscribers is putting pressure on affiliate fees and advertising rates, so it’s becoming more important than ever for Peacock revenues to offset falling cable TV revenues and that the TV ad business is “definitely getting worse.”

So, what do you think of the uptick of subscribers to Peacock since September? Is Days of our Lives a key player in this? Have you gotten use to watching your favorite soap on the streaming platform? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

DAYS Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Pay Tribute to Robert Clary

Days of our Lives beloved Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie Williams), paid tribute to their longtime co-star and dear friend, Robert Clary (Ex-Robert LeClair, DAYS).

On Wednesday, Clary passed away at the age of 96.  On Days of our Lives, Bill Hayes and Robert Clary performed many times together as Doug and Robert when the soap opera had “Doug’s Place” as a nightclub venue for the characters to meet up and have story, while also taking in some music.

 

Bill and Susan shared their thoughts on Clary’s passing on their Instagram on Thursday; accompanied by some clips of performances by the characters of Doug and Robert.

The Hayes’ expressed: “Our Dear Robert Clary… Like a diamond, Robert was tough enough to survive this world and emerge brilliantly. He was so full of life… so saucy, so sassy, so superb at everything he tried. The energy and optimism that filled his 96 years was amazing to behold.  When he performed with pathos or joy, he always touched our hearts. He was an adoring husband, a firm friend, a trustworthy team player and, in crisis, deeply caring. In childhood, he had experienced humanity’s darkest days- then, as a man, filled the world with light.  His story in two words to remember: choose life. #RobertClary”
